Our two weeks in Edmonton have drawn to a close and we returned home this morning. The time went all too quickly. We didn’t get a chance to do all the activities we had planned and although I had a chance to get a lot of knitting and some designing done, it wasn’t anywhere near as much as I brought with me! The above photo is an update on the Avery sweater. I like the slow change in colour in the corrugated rib cuff. Since the photo was taken, I’ve completed the second sleeve so it’s just the front and finishing to go.
I finished up the gloves on which I was working. I’m much more happy with the results this time. The fingers are no longer too tight. A little more fine tuning and test knitting is required – especially in the children’s and the men’s sizes. Then I need to knit some more samples to photograph and get this pattern published!

I’m really pleased with the thumb gusset. After sampling a number of gusset styles I designed a hybrid palm/basic gusset. The line created by the increases on the palm of the hand it slightly reminiscent of a life line. Seems fitting.
We’re on the move again tomorrow to visit friends on the Sunshine Coast. I’ll be sure to bring my knitting as the kids play all day.
